Pros: Head Material, Balance, Construction, Weight, Handle Material
solid purchase, could have been 5 star
I purchased this axe to stand as my all around backpacking and camping axe, and it is exactly what I wanted. Its light, feels sturdy, and best of all simple. I've read complaints about how it could be grinded smooth, I on other other hand love the rough natural feel of the forged steel. It says that the poll is polished. Its not. It looks like they spent a few seconds on the edges of the poll, but I would not say polished. That really isn't a big deal though, just a bit misleading. I'm a fan of the sturdy leather sheath, I just wish it had a loop for a belt or attaching to molle webbing. Again not a big issue. Overall I'm very happy with this axe. It feels worth its money. I would have given it 5 stars if it had that little loop, but that was a frustration so 4 it is.
